Four Uses for Vinegar besides Cooking With it

Did you know that the rather harmless distilled white vinegar that's just sitting right on top of your pantry is one of the most versatile products in your home?

It's true. There are many ways that you can use vinegar other than using it as an ingredient in salad dishes.

For starters, vinegar is a pretty effective cleaning agent. You can clean a lot of things with it. Are your car's wiper blades too grimy? Get a clean cloth, wet it with some vinegar and wipe the wiper blades with it. Is your refrigerator dirty? Use vinegar instead of water to wipe it out. Your floor, hairbrushes, and even countertops are all areas or things that you can clean effectively with vinegar. Because vinegar is pretty cheap and safe for you, you don't need to use those harmful chemical cleaners anymore once you start using vinegar to clean most of your house.

Speaking of cleaning, did you know that vinegar is one of the most effective things that you can use to rinse out your dishwasher? Just toss a cup of white vinegar into the bottom of an empty dishwasher. Run it like you normally would and your dishwasher should come out smelling fresh and with very few if any food particles. You can also use vinegar to unclog drains, as well a natural hair rinse.

So, cleaning and cooking, what else? Well, did you know that you can use vinegar to treat pans and remove stickers? It's also a very effective deodorizer. It's amazing just how many garbage, food, and bathroom odors you can eliminate with just vinegar.

As you can see, vinegar is an extremely useful pantry product that can save you lots of time and money now that you know how and where else it can be used.
